Have you ever suffered from poor sleep?
We’ve all had a bad night’s sleep at least once in our lives and most likely, we were tired the next day, probably irritable and more negative than usual.
For those who have, or are suffering from insomnia or some form of disturbed sleep, you know it is no picnic. Sleep deprivation effects can be rough.
Lack of sleep makes it hard to concentrate, to think clearly, and it leads to irritability. Studies from Christina Gobin from the University of Florida and Sandra Tamm from the Karolinska Institutet, show that sleep deprivation leads to a negativity bias and poor emotional regulation. This means that we have a tendency to negatively interpret emotional stimuli when lacking sleep, and that dealing with our emotions becomes quite difficult.
Not only do we interpret things negatively, we also remember negative input more easily and so focus more on negative things.
The implication of this is that when tired, we are more vulnerable to mental illness. Particularly depression. It has long been thought that sleep deprivation plays an important role in depression and this helps us to better understand why.
So a lack of sleep will make you more negative but if you are vulnerable to mental illness, it could play a substantial role in worsening your symptoms.
That is why sleep is so important for your health. Both mental and physical.
Sleep will help you regulate your emotions and it will make you see the world in a more positive way.
